CLEVELAND, Nov. 10 (Ticker) -- LeBron James showed why he is a superstar in the making.

James scored 17 of his 38 points in the fourth quarter to help Cleveland overcome a 19-point deficit and added four in overtime as the Cavaliers ended the Phoenix Suns' four-game winning streak with a 114-109 victory.

Drafted first overall out of high school in 2003, James earned NBA Rookie of the Year honors at the age of 19 last season. He has started strong in his sophomore campaign, averaging 26.3 points per game through four contests.

In this one, James helped Cleveland erase a huge three-quarter deficit by singlehandedly outscoring the Suns in the fourth period, 17-14. He scored seven consecutive points for Cleveland to cut the deficit to 97-96 with 34 seconds left.

"A lot of people gave up on us tonight, including our crowd," James said. "But we didn't give up on ourselves. The people who left, I know they either came back or they listened to it in their cars."

"We were down big and LeBron said, 'Hey, I'm going to get it done for you in the fourth quarter,'" Cavaliers coach Paul Silas said. "That was all we needed, and the guys came with it. It was such a great comeback. To win that kind of game is just unbelievable."

Zydrunas Ilgauskas hit a 3-pointer with 3.6 seconds left - just the 7-3 center's fourth of his career - to send the game to overtime and complete the biggest fourth-quarter comeback in team history. The Cavaliers overcame a 15-point margin after three quarters on March 7, 1971 against Detroit.

"The play was designed for LeBron and we didn't have a lot of time," Ilgauskas said. "LeBron got the ball and my man went to him and left me wide open. LeBron passed it to me and I didn't hesitate because I didn't have time to think about it and I just let it fly."

"There was no hesitation to give (Ilgauskas) the ball," James added. "I knew he could make that shot."

The Suns seemingly ran out of gas and were guilty of six turnovers in the fourth quarter, including two in the final minute.

Riding momentum, Cleveland scored the first eight points of overtime, including a pair of jumpers by Ilgauskas, to take a 107-99 lead.

Ilgauskas scored 24 points and Drew Gooden added 16 and 21 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who have won two in a row after opening the season with three losses.

"I was hugging coach Silas like we won the national championship," Gooden said. "I couldn't believe (Ilgauskas) hit that shot (in the fourth)."

Shawn Marion scored 22 points and Quentin Richardson added 21 for Phoenix (4-1), which failed in a bid to match the best start in franchise history.

"Guys shut it down defensively and we started missing some shots, and they started getting on a roll," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni said.

"There was about a five-minute stretch in the fourth quarter that did us in," Suns point guard Steve Nash said.

The Suns believed they had wrapped up the game after going on a 30-11 run to end the third quarter, breaking open a tie game. Reserve center Steven Hunter scored 11 points during the run while Marion chipped in 11.

But center Amare Stoudemire, who scored 20 points, fouled out with 3:20 left in the fourth period, and the Cavaliers went on a 14-6 run to force the extra session.

"We let it slip away," Richardson said. "That's definitely a game we should have won."
